rafa’s pink shoes


Here are pics of the shoe Nike produced to go with the pink/blue/yellow kit they produced for Rafael Nadal‘s abbreviated Roland Garros run. These Courtballistecs 1.3 Clay Court shoes have a bull logo on the back of the left shoe, “Rafa” written on the back of the right shoe, and four fireballs for each of the four years that he’s won the tourney.

A closer look: More pics after the cut…

    I really don’t understand Nike. Why would anyone waste the time making these shoes? Pink is not for muscular men and his fans won’t buy them so what is the point. They look ridiculous. Love Rafa, hate the shoes.

    Rafa was going to wear these in the French Open semis (which nike assumed he would make, being 4 time reigning champ) but he lost, so he didnt get to wear them :(

    I like these! They remind me of something Kanye West would wear, without the ‘Rafa’ on the back of course.

    Nike is just great, and amazing also. Marketing is always the best part of Nike. Even they have not the best shoes, clothes.

    It’s the marketing what makes them better….

    Great article btw..
